When I saw this photo of these Cinnamon Roll Pancakes it was 1:00 AM and I wanted to jump up and make these! Can we say yuuuummmmy? I adapted this recipe right away and my family is so excited that I did. They’re always asking me when I’m gonna make these again.
Here’s what Recipe Girl says about these, along with her recipe: I have a wonderfully fluffy pancake batter that I like to use (recipe below) so I swirled a bit of cinnamon roll filling into the pancake. And they cooked up just like a pancake- fluffy, but with craters of crusty, sugary cinnamon swirled within. You might find three of these stacked in a fancy breakfast restaurant, but I’m gonna tell you that one pancake is all you need. It’s like eating a cinnamon roll, and no one needs more than one cinnamon roll for breakfast. Or certainly no more than two! I can eat this pancake without the glaze, but you really need to add the glaze to get the full cinnamon roll-effect.
Oh yeah. A warmed cream cheese glaze drizzled on top really completes this pancake. No syrup needed. Let me say that again: No. Syrup. Needed.
There you have it: Cinnamon Roll Pancakes. With lots of ooey, gooey cream cheese glaze drizzled on top. Do yourself a favor and treat yourself to a pancake today. Go get ’em. These babies are just like eating a cinnamon roll, which is a perfectly okay… once in a while, right? I mean, it’s not like I put chocolate chip cookie dough in them or anything. Hmmmm.
